Accessible Properties is pleased to be part of a new agreement that will see a further 508 homes made available for people in need of social housing in South and West Auckland.
New Zealand’s largest non-government social housing provider is one of five organisations selected to provide the homes.
Accessible Properties’ own stake in the agreement will see it supply up to 58 new homes. All tenants will be able to apply for the supplemented Income Related Rents Subsidies (IRRS).
“We are delighted to have had our proposal accepted and to be part of this initiative,” says Accessible Properties’ General Manager, Andrew Wilson. “We know people on low incomes in Auckland are desperate for good quality housing. That’s why the city is one of our priority areas and this is one of a number of ways that we are adding to the stock in Auckland.”
Accessible Properties is a registered Community Housing Provider that has completed 157 new housing units in the past two years, partly funded by Social Housing Fund grants. A further 34 will be completed by early next year. 41 of those homes are in Auckland (with 16 more underway).
“We’ve been in community housing for more than 60 years – we have a long history of providing good quality housing and coordinating support for people with disabilities and on low incomes,” says Andrew Wilson.
“We look forward to seeing more people settled in good housing that works for them.”
